-japanese protests started causing a protest of japanese protests and those who use them. and the protests are so bad that a chinese man made the simple mistake of driving a japanese car in a chai neads city of chian and was beat sewn badly he is paralyzed. this week, a chinese minister accused a japanese vessel of target i targeting the radar on a japanese ship off of the islands, but the chinese officials are disputing it happened. now think about this, the world's second and the third largest economies playing chicken in the pacific over a dispute of uninhabited islands, but if this diplomatic disagreement were to escalate into a military obligation, the united states would be obligated by the 52-year-old treaty obligation to help the sovereignty of japan, and does that mean that north korea would come to the aid of china, but it is a quaint and admittedly alarmist experiment, because that is not how foreign wars are conducted anymore. next month marks the 10-year invasion of iraq, and the last conflict that we can think of conventional war that claimed the lives of more than 4,000 americans and b

but she was a teenager, kind of a celebrity to us. she travelled with friends of her age all older and much more exciting than any of us. aunt agnes was smart in school, won a scholarship. taking the subway and bus up to posh hill. gave a scholarship to another girl who needed it. she decided to join the convent to become a sister of st. joseph like her older sister eleanor. when she told her mother the decision, her mother said wait until your father hears this. when she told grandpa, he said do what will make you happy, and she did. here they are, the two of them, aunt eleanor and aunt agnes in their old habits, mom's younger sisters. i was looking through the e-mails and here is a typical one from october. it was just after the first presidential debate when i went ballistic over obama's weak performance. quote, on saturday i attended a meeting of over 500 sisters. as usual, during break time, many sisters i didn't know told me how much they appreciated "hardball." all the talk then was about the president's debate and my shall we say dramatic reaction to that presidential perfo

justification for using drone strikes. >> drones set to take center stage. >> to kill american citizens. >> these targets are ethical and justified. >> these are not the drones you're looking for. >> republicans are at war with karl rove. bush's brain, as rove used to be known, when rove was thought to still have a brain, is on a mission to crush backcrap crazy republicans so the party will actually nominate more reasonable candidates who have a chance of winning general elections against democrats. today, a republican who writes big checks to karl rove told politico that the republican party, quote, has had too many candidates who are nut cases. i don't think anybody anywhere with any sense is going to want to elect a candidate who says if your daughter gets raped, it's god's will. give me a break, will you? the problem for karl rove is that he and his rich republican friends may be outnumbered by crazy republicans. after rove announced his new super pac aimed at crushing republicans in favor of new republicans, the civil war has begun. the president of freedom works declared the empir
that "lincoln" is the big movie of last year. directed by the great steven spielburg who gave us jaws and indiana jones and saving private ryan. i love this movie. it's about real people. people from down the street. people with problems. the widow of a policeman shot in line of duty, a young man suffering from a challenging illness, a mother who refuses to be down beat. it's about a family held together by -- well, being a family. and i'm for this. look at my country. people that refuse to give up. families that refuse to give up on each other. if you've given up on going to the movies and are not going anymore, go to this one. what american movies can be. that they can be truly great. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

. this is how 300 plus million of us do it. we do. we make it. we live lives that end up making good sense to those around us. sometimes it's all in the way we think or feel or can't do either. it all breaks down and we, too, become danger, even lethal. when these things happen, we make the news and we feel something. as we watch the story of a man killing others, killing out of vengeance or human interest itself, what do we make of it? it's easy to tell these stories, and we did, i did, here on television. this story of a former military officer telling his story out in a cabin fighting it out knowing it's all come to this. last night, here was a part of the human story, the american story, someone who just couldn't deal with what came. that "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, a more perfect union. president obama tells republicans to get on board or get out of the way. today, the president hit the road to promote the new second term agenda that he unvailed in

books? can he be truly transformational, the word he used in saying what bill clinton was not. and that is the question. and don't think the two of those guys, clinton and obama, aren't keeping a close watch on the scoreboard. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

. >> you said build the dang fence where. is the fence? >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. speaker boehner's lies, well, they are finally catching up with him. the truth has a funny way of coming back to haunt you, doesn't it? today president obama continued to tell the public about the damage to expect if the automatic budget cuts from the sequester are not averted. here is a good reason the president is keeping the pressure on. polls show the public will blame republicans. in the latest survey, a majority of americans do not support the republican priorities in congress. those priorities include cuts, cuts, and more cuts, and a lot of hurt. but house speaker john boehner has been trying to avoid the blame game by putting the sequester around the president's neck. >> we're weeks away from the president's sequester, and the president laid out no plan to eliminate the sequester and the harmful cuts that will come as a result of it. >> remember that. he is saying the president's sequester. all right. let's move on. boehner's lackeys in congress are happy to repe
with these endless manufactured crises that are now coming at us with such disgusting regularity. no deal on medicare/medicaid reform until the republicans pony up tax reform. boehner says no tax reform until there is reform. both sides can go on with the squared off positions as long as their political bases support them. this could be a long time, because boehner's biggest worry isn't the president, it's the tea party members of his own caucus who might just bring him down if he agrees to raise revenues. the president's biggest worry isn't boehner alone, it's the democrats who will assault him if he cuts a deal with bain they're doesn't raise revenues. well, the only question to which i do not know the answer is how in the world can boehner and the president cut a deal when they're so restricted to what they can accept? and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to ted show from new york. three days from austerity. john boehner is scolding the senate, while the president is out working with the fo

u.s. official has determined the target poses a, quote, iminnocent threat of violent attack and clear evidence of an attack is not required. step two, capture must be, quote, infeasible. and step three, the strike must be conducted according to, quote, laws of war principles. but this isn't a just in case guideline. the targeted killings of u.s. citizens have already happened. september 2011, two were killed in yemen. both were u.s. citizens. yes, it's believed al allaki wa connected to the christmas day bomber but he was never charged with a crime. here's how the doj and the white house defend the kill list. >> our concern is to keep the american people safe but in a way that's consistent with our laws and consistent with our values. >> we conduct those strikes because they're necessary to mitigate ongoing actual threats, to stop plots, prevent future attacks and save american lives. the strikes are legal, they're ethical and wise. >> critics say this administration is putting the constitutional rights of american citizens in jeopardy and disregarding federal law that crimi

policing itself wi itself. of that statistic will be nominated as the most outrage us number. the fbi finds just 260 justified homicides a year. we're not policing ourselves. the nra spreads fear of armed criminals to sell guns but more people are murdered during arguments with someone they know than during the commission of a robbery. the true locus of the discussion should be guns in the hands of family members, lovers, neighbors. what stops a good guy with a gun who is angry at a good guy he's friends with or angry at a woman he loves? more than twice as many women are killed with a gun used by a husband or lover than are murdered by strangers using guns, knives, or any other means. reeva was killed because of an argument or a tragic accident by a gun but killed by a gun meant for protection from criminals who never came. it's highly unlikely that a criminal will ever come through the door and studies where sociologists interview criminals find the vast majority don't want to shoot anyone. they want to get stuff and go. murder is bad for business for them. so in preparation for that exce
